Baillie Gifford Japanese Income Growth B Inc

Willis Owen Research Commentary

This Focus 50 fund aims to outperform the Topix index over rolling 5 year periods while delivering a superior yield. It is co-managed by Karen See and Matt Brett, supported by nine other Japan specialists, each with sector responsibilities. Stock selection is paramount and the managers study industry trends and themes such as technology and demographics. The current yield is modest but there is scope for this to increase as Japanese companies adopt a dividend-paying culture. The emphasis is on those with strong balance sheets and commitment to growing dividends. Fees are competitive versus peers and we think this fund is a sound option for core Japanese equity exposure.
